opening up

By macdaniel
Yesterday was a day with pleasant surprises -
one of them was the day itself
in being the first spring day and I was not alone in noticing it;
the snowdrops opened up -
the inward petals show some more phantasy with their green patch
and the elongated heart shaped form;
this one, from yesterday, was taken with a lens combination one would not immediately think of
when trying to make something of a close-up shot.
Today was less springlike but still nice - saw a bee and a ladybird;
tried to make a proper close-up with a macro lens of the opened-up snowdrops;
the magic of yesterday was not as present and it didn't work;
however, one of these images I do upload as a version here;
it is more an informative image and shows another unexpected or better
hidden aspect of this little early flower;
it became exposed as probably an early snail must have fed on the petals of the snowdrop.
As every year the saying goes "one swallow doesn't make summer" and from tomorrow the
temperatures are dropping again with next week hardly 4 or 5 degrees during daytime
as I have only nearly survived this winter not really a thing to look forward to.

thanks for looking and for being here
